  • "Overall 2 Paul's is a great find. The food and food choices are very good, as is the service. The attitude is pleasant and customer focused. We were there on a fairly busy night but the noise level was very reasonable."

  • "This restaurant is very enjoyable. Their cocktails are excellent; the menu has a variety of offerings and there are always interesting specials. Food is delicious and the servers are very accommodating. Overall value is very good. 2 Paul's is not only worth a visit but repeat visits as well!"

  • "I dined here on a Saturday night with a group of 4, its a cute little spot with a nice ambiance. For a group of twenty - somethings, we were probably some of the younger ones there but it didn't bother us much since we were looking for a relaxing evening. We ended up using a Groupon which we felt ended up being a good deal (steaks are a $5 upcharge fyi). The food was good...I can't say it was 5 star but it was decent enough for us to consider coming back. The drinks were excellent (I'd definitely recommend the 2pauls punch) and the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. They were super attentive and made sure out experience was a good one."

  • "My wife and I tried this place out for our 6 yr anniversary and were impressed. We both ordered chicken Parmesan. The dish was quickly served (within 20 minutes) and we were surprised at the portion. It was generous to say the least. The chicken 3/4 plate length, the breading was unique and a delightful surprise over the basic breading you find almost everywhere. Overall it was a pleasant experience. I was looking to possibly get some cognac for an after meal treat but decided to pass because they only had VS on the list and I without question prefer at least a vsop. I look forward to trying more menu items in the future."

  • "We've been eating at 2 Paul's since it opened, and have been there repeatedly since then. The ambiance is comfortable and warm, the service is outstanding, and the food is incredible! Out of the many times we've been there, with various family members and friends, never once have we heard a complaint! I recommend it to all - it is truly a fabulous dining experience!"

  • "Four of us were headed to the PPAC to see a show on Valentines day. We ate early to leave plenty of time to get into town for the show. My girlfriend and I have been here once before. We had a great experience the last time and this time the food and service were as good as they were before. We had the fried calamari as an appetizer, the calamari is battered right there and is excellent. I had Meatloaf this time, it was good but could have used more gravy. The mashed potatos were good, but the string beans that went with them were excellent. My girlfriend had NY Sirloin that she said was perfect, and my brother had the Maryland crab cakes. The service was excellent. The server was attentive, this even though it was not that busy."

  • "The reviews are pretty accurate. Go here with the knowledge that the food is totally worth it. The service... They seem to try really hard, but either just don't get it or were never shown how. Will definitely go back again for either the meatloaf or chicken parm."

  • "Portions were good , food is delicious . Chicken piccata was great. Server was friendly but over worked . Appetizer came out 35 mins later then food about 5 mins later . Seating felt like we were speed dating , on top of each other in rows with little privacy . Great place for quick dinner but not a romantic spot at all ."

  • "This is a really good restaurant. Food, service excellent. Location? Soso. It is in East Providence not Providence. The chef is outstanding and owned some of my favorite restaurants: Oak on the East Side and Down City Diner. The meatloaf is wonderful and a signature dish. Our party of 6 were all very happy with our choices. The chicken parm could be shared it is huge!! We have already been here 2x and plan another visit. Hope the crowd finds this rather out of the way place. Worth the trip."

  • "Excellent food, but the service was lacking. It was extremely busy, but that is not an excuse. The friendliness was there, but not the follow-up."

  • "Overall a very nice experience. Our group had appetizers, seafood, steak and kabobs. Food and service was very good. Mixed greens were fresh, fish and steak were juicy and done perfectly. Steak kabobs were a little dry. Server checked on us often."

  • "My family went to this restaurant just expecting to have dinner and found something very special. We were received with a warm and friendly greeting. Between courses we were visited by the chef. He was very sociable and very proud of his restaurant and this was reflected through the food. It was delicious and we cannot wait to go back to try other menu items. The waitress was helpful and spoke kindly to my 11 year old son. The child's order of Mac and Cheese was gourmet and tasty enough to be put on the regular menu. The beef was cooked to perfection and the vegetables were well seasoned. On this Saturday there was entertainment. A man played the guitar and sang. We sat two tables away and the music was neither loud nor distracting."

  • "I HAVE NEVER had a worse dining experience than this one at 2 Paul's Grille. 5 of us went to the restaurnat Friday night as part of restaurant week because their menu looked good. The food was just 'OK'. It was delivered to the table in shifts (when it finally came out--after an hour! ) Some items got sent back becasue they were not cooked as ordered. Other items were taken away and then brought back as the servers did not know what was part of restaurnat week and who ordered what.... We made friends at the tables to either side of us as they were having bad experiences as well! I could go on & on....but I am running out of characters. JUST AWFUL !!!!"
